Planning your Student’s Program Using the Comprehensive Autism Planning System (CAPS)
Shawn Henry, Ohio Center for Autism and Low Incidence (OCALI)
Description: This webcast will provide an overview of the Comprehensive Autism Planning System (CAPS). CAPS is an easy-to-use system that allows educators to understand how and when to implement an instructional program for students with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The CAPS model helps the educational team develop a plan to implement a student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) effectively. The CAPS model answers the questions (a) What supports does my student/child need in each class to be successful? (b) What goals is my student/child working on? and (c) Is there a thoughtful sequence to the student’s/child’s day for implementation of instruction? Dr. Henry will lead participants through the CAPS process which includes the use of natural opportunities and supports to ensure student success as well as data collection to measure that success.
